I have a question, first, let me state I served from 92- 00. I NEVER SAW COMBAT. My question is hypothetical and I AM IN NO WAY TRYING TO SAY I EARNED A CIB. I am not trying to insult anyone here if I do, I apologize upfront. When I enlisted I was an 11B, I served in the 25th ID, HI. HHC 4/22in Scouts (C quad). I earned my EIB (as we were never in combat). I changed MOS when I re-enlisted to 92A (POG MOS I get it, started a family, priorities changed). I did carry 11B as my second MOS, I base this on my DD214 as it lists my 92A20 as 4yrs 3mths and also 11B20 for my entire enlistment 7yrs 9mths. Now my question is, if as a 92A with secondary 11B HAD I been attached to an Infantry company and was involved in combat with the Infantry company would I have been eligible for the CIB? My gut says no but I am curious.. be gentle.. lol

SGT Mark Burns - If your primary MOS is 92A at the time you are in active ground combat and you meet the criteria to earn a CIB or CAB, you would be awarded the CAB. Doesn't matter if 11B is your secondary MOS.

No you have to be an infantryman engaged in combat with the enemy to be awarded a CIB. Said SM would wear the CAB until he engages an enemy as an infantryman

Said Infantryman, has to be with Infantry type unit command when taking contact or they get a CAB also. We had some Grunt types with our Joint Task Force in Iraq and when took contact, the Grunts ended up getting CAB's, like all of us.
